Interaction with guests
We offer a personalised check-in. In addition to providing guidebooks and maps of the city, as well as our own personal itineraries of outings, adventures and places of interest near the apartment and throughout Lisbon, we will be available to assist with any other requests guests may have prior to their visit or during their stay. We live very close by. We can also provide specific assistance with bookings and information about trips and guided tours in and around Lisbon and Portugal.

The apartment is located in a residential building, and we thus ask for noise levels to be kept within reasonable limits, particularly between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am. We also ask that you treat the apartment and its furnishings with care and respect, as if they were your own.
Check in is between 3:00 pm and 10:00 pm. Check out must done by 11 am. We can be flexible with these timings on request, provided they do not conflict with other bookings.
For stays of two weeks or longer, we offer a mid-stay cleaning with changing of towels and linens.
Smoking is not allowed in the apartment.
Though we love animals (and have two cats and a dog ourselves), this apartment is not prepared to receive pets.
I am a Portuguese mother of two boys and a researcher in film studies and literature who loves animals, spending time with family and friends, travelling, laughing and defending educational, cultural, social, ethical and environmental causes. My husband (an American literature professor who fell so in love with Portugal 25 years ago that he decided to make it his home) and I have lived in Lisbon for more than two decades and love sharing our enthusiasm for this amazing city with family, friends and guests from all over the world.
